Upset Prevention and Recovery Training Ground School
This is a presentation regarding common causes of LOC, how to avoid, recognize, and recover from upsets, followed by Q&A.
Date and Time:
Saturday, December 12, 2020, starting at 10:00 Pacific Standard Time (11:00 MST, 12:00 CST, 13:00 EST, 08:00 HST, 09:00 AKST, 11:00 Arizona, 18:00 GMT)
Tom Rogers
Brief Description:


Tom Rogers is CFII and FAASTeam Representative. He was active duty USAF, taught in T-37s, taught spin training, flew F-15s and spent 31 years as a “airline jockey.” He was with BEFA and now instructs at KPWT. He has a BS of Aeronautical Technology from ASU. In retirement he is teaching Tail wheel and upset prevention and recovery training for GA pilots and CFI candidates. 


From 1949 to 2001, stall and spin accidents decreased year after year. Since 2001, the number of spin accidents has plateaued at a point where we have nearly one each week in the US. Since practicing upsets, spins, and recoveries can be difficult, Tom will present a “ground school” aimed at first explaining LOC, upsets, and unusual attitudes differences. Then a short course on the aerodynamics of stalls and spins. Tom will explain the new FAA emphasis item Avoid-Recognize-Recover. Finally, he will wrap up the presentation by giving you simple steps that are easy to remember. Great presentation for private through ATP, especially CFI candidates, who have not had a chance to undergo professional spin training.
